We want you to be heard and understood. Bentley’s English degree helps students find their voice and share it with the world.

As an English major, you’ll study literary methods and philosophies from around the globe. And you’ll create literary pieces too.

Coursework is designed to guide you through the creative process for your preferred genre, from poetry to screenwriting. Communication skills are a key factor in career advancement, whether you work in a creative field or not. Every English major must complement their program with foundational business studies, leading either toward a minor or a second major in Business Studies. This ensures you leave Bentley with broad business skills, in addition to technical proficiency in the written arts.
